Telephone Directory Namibian Operational Information Chart Section Chart Explaination Chart Layout Legend Overfly Points Aerodrome Data (Alphabetical) Visual approach & aerodrome charts General Introduction This Aerodrome Directory has been developed for use in pre flight planning and air navigation under visual flight condition. Aerodrome charts are provided to assist pilots on VFR flights by providing airfield data and surrounds in a convenient graphic or pictorial form, and should be used together with the applicable aeronautical charts, aeronautical information publications and NOTAMs. Caution Many airfields in this directory are privately owned and their conditions may not be detailed in NOTAMs if they or the services become unusable, temporarily or permanently. Before departure information should always be obtained on unfamiliar fields to determine the current state of the runway. Contacts The most common criticism of Aviation Directories I have heard is “That book has so many mistakes”. RSV Aviation took over this project because we felt there was insufficient airfield information available in Namibia. With over 500 airfields entries, and many more not yet included, of which only 1/3 we have first hand information on, inevitably there will be corrections to make. So please, if you know of any information to improve the content or quality of this publication, instead of criticising, help us to make this available to all pilots flying in Namibia for safer and more enjoyable aviating.

Uncontrolled airspace in Windhoek FIR below 1500ft AGL. Uncontrolled airspace in Windhoek FIR airspace over 1500ft. Also Windhoek Area control and information service. General Flying Areas, eg FYD130, areas assigned for training and general aviation flights. Air to Air chat for transmission of non essential information. Glider traffic and unmanned glider fields. Note: Relays do not provide 100% coverage on 124.7, in remote areas or low altitudes, if no contact is established blind transmissions should be made, or request a relay from another aircraft. Because of un-uniform terrain beware of aircraft possibly operating on 124.7 or 124.8 in the same areas, try to monitor both on climb out/approach and any time doubt exists. All unmanned frequencies require blind transmissions at regular intervals Altitudes Circuit Altitude Circuit altitude is 1000ft above ground for piston, 1500ft above ground for turbines. Transition Altitude/Level Transition altitude where not published is 2000ft AGL, and Transition level 3000ft AGL for flights in VMC. Semi Circular The semi circular rule for uncontrolled airspace in Namibia applies to magnetic track as follows for VFR flights between 1500ft AGL up to FL195, (No VFR traffic is permitted above FL195): East (001-179) Odd Flight levels, +500ft West (180-359) Even flight levels +500ft This rule has the exception of two corridors directly North and South of Windhoek, to prevent traffic on similar routes at different levels, if in doubt request information from the briefing office. Namibian Operational Information VFR/IFR Traffic All charts unless specified are for VFR only, however be aware there may be IFR aircraft operating on Visual Approaches, remember in VMC all pilots are required to maintain a good lookout for other traffic, to maintain a listening watch on the appropriate frequencies and transmit intentions when required. Other Time UTC+1hr winter, 0100UTC 1st Sunday April to 0100UTC 1st Sunday September, UTC+2hrs summer (Winter time) Official Language English License Requirements ICAO, FAA and JAR licenses can be validated or converted to a full Namibian license. In all cases at least a flight test, law exam, and radio exam will be required. For pilots with little experience it is also recommended that training be completed prior to undertaking the tests to become familiar with local operating requirements. Commercial licenses will not be converted without a valid work permit or Visa. Charts All charts are for VFR use only Chart Explaination Airfield data in table form is included with the approach charts in alphabetical order for ease of reference. Each letter has a list of all runways, followed by charts of those runways with charts available. In the airfield lists the following distinctions have been made: Listings in BOLD indicate a chart is available. Listings in ITALICS indicate the airfield has been visually inspected, but insufficient information for charts. All other coordinates have been compiled from written data sources only. Notes on format changes New runways have been included with photographs when available, however pictures have been taken en route and so are unfortunately not always North orientated. Area charts have on some occasions been omitted due to either a lack of information or no useful information. Due to variations in sources of information and updates some pictorial representations and chart formats differ slightly. Although this is not desirable it was felt providing the information albeit in different formats is better than not. The legend gives a broad guideline to pictorial/graphical representation.

Direction, surface, elevation (threshold), dimensions and slope. Note: some data may be pilot estimates due to lack of correctly surveyed information.
